Peter Sterling, one of the greatest analysts and commentators in rugby league, who has been with the Nine Rugby League commentary team for 25 years, has signed a new and exclusive deal with Wide World of Sports.
From 2018, Peter will be exclusively seen on Nine’s broadcast and digital platforms, offering first class analysis on live play and expert insight across programs.
Sterlo first started with Nine in 1992 and says this feels like a homecoming, “I’ve really enjoyed my time at Fox Sports over the past few years, but it’s great to be back at Nine 100%. I’m really excited about Nine’s plans for rugby league in 2018 and beyond as we enter a new broadcast era, and I’m thrilled that I get to be part of it on a full time basis.”
Nine’s Director of Sport Tom Malone said, “From next year, Nine’s NRL rights expand to include full live streaming and catch up on Nine’s matches and digital rights across all NRL matches. Peter is a key part of our strategy going forward to create the best rugby league content, distribute it widely across all platforms, for audiences to consume anywhere and anytime.”
Sterlo will join up with his old sparring partner Paul “Fatty” Vautin in the commentary box this Friday night, when the Storm take on the Broncos live from 7:30pm on Nine.
